I wrote this when my nana died and it was used as part of her funeral
Darkness Falls
The angels call
“Its Time To Welcome You Home”
Despite the pain
And tears that fall
From the ones left behind
A sense of peace settles in our hearts
Because it was your time
No more sorrow, fear or pain
Only light and love remain

You fought the fight
To some it may seem you lost
But to those who travelled
The distance by your side
Your strength inspired us all
And as you take the time to gaze down
On all those who’s path’s you crossed
Your heart should fill with a sense of pride
At the legacy you left behind

Although words may never justify
Just how much you touched our lives
And every emotion will need to be faced
Simply day by day
Forever we shall celebrate the life
You lived and loved
Through memories that overflow
With enough to fill a lifetime
And in our hearts and souls
For an eternity
You will be
